Supporting Our Troops In Afghanistan with Free Accessories
British Soldiers playing ping pong with improvised table tennis table
We also received an email from a group of soldiers stationed in Afghanistan as part of the REME (Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers). We are delighted to say that we were able to meet their request for new bats and balls for their table, as theirs had seen better days. We received a very grateful email a few days later: < >"Thank you very much for your box of goodies, I was gobsmacked at your generosity! All of the lads out here I'm working with now think of you as a legend!
I have attached a couple of pictures with this email, I hope you like them."

Over 30 Table Tennis Tables Donated To Various Good Causes
Table Tennis Tables Loaned To J.P. Morgan For Children In Need
We were recently approached by J.P. Morgan Asset Management as they wanted our help to raise money for BBC Children In Need. We were delighted to be able to support them with their charitable endeavour and agreed to loan them a couple of tables free of charge. We rushed two Kettler Smash 11 table tennis tables to their London offices for their in-house tournament which took place over three weeks.
We would like to say a big thank you and congratulations to everyone at J.P. Morgan who took part and well done for raising money for this great cause.
Table Tennis Table Donated to National OCD/BDD Ward at Springfield University Hospital
We were recently asked if we could help the National OCD/BDD ward at Springfield University Hospital, London. One of their patients wrote to us and explained how he felt a table on the ward would be a great help to compliment the treatments offered. The ward specifically supports people with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD).
Shaun Meyer-Ede, resident Occupational Therapist wrote:
“Thank you very much for the donation of the table tennis table to the ward. It has quickly become a valued piece of equipment.
Having a table tennis table on the ward offers our service users an activity that may challenge their fears, offer physical exercise, support them to engage in a leisure activity with their peers, offer them an activity to distract them from (at times) difficult emotions and give them an outlet for frustration/boredom and just having a bit of fun!”.
Here are some of the comments from our service users:
  • “Offers comfort and momentary relief from the torture and suffering of mental illness”
  • “Provides physical and mental stimulation”
  • “Offers a distraction and helps people to refocus their attention on an activity to help them stop doing their compulsions”
  • “Good addition to the ward…breaks up the boredom”
  • “Helps distract me from my OCD”
  • “Great way to pass the time and helps me to socialise”
We are glad that we were able to help and wish you all the best in the future.

Donating a Table Tennis Table to Mercy UK Charity
We were pleased to have been able to help this wonderful charity, Mercy UK, by donating a table for their fundraising event and use at their residential home in Oxenhope.
Mercy UK offer a 6 month free residential programme for young women aged between 18 and 30 years old. They provide a safe environment for women suffering from life-controlling issues such as self-harm, eating disorders and abuse of all kinds.
The vision for Mercy UK was born in 1999 after Pastor Paul Scanlon from Life Church in Bradford met Nancy Alcorn and heard about the work of Mercy Ministries (now known as Mercy Multiplied). The pastor was convinced that the UK needed these homes too and was passionate about making a difference. He set about forming a team to bring Mercy to the UK; a team which included their current Chief Executive, Arianna Walker.
By 2004 Mercy UK had become an independent charity, governed by a UK Board of Trustees and then in 2006 they opened their first residential Christian discipleship programme. Since then they’ve seen over 300 courageous young women enter through their doors and they plan to expand further and offer even more services.
We would like to wish them all the best for the future and should you like to learn more about this fantastic charity, or even offer them your support please visit their website: mercyuk.org

Over £1000 For Children in Need Raised at CarFest 2014
We were approached by Chris Evans to come to CarFest to help raise money for BBC Children In Need. As this is such a worthy cause we were delighted to accept and so we packed up a dozen table tennis tables, our camping gear and gazebo to head up North for the festival.
Once the tables were all set up people came and paid to use them, even Darth Vader had a go. In doing this we were able to raise well in excess of £1000.
To help raise even more money we also gave away two Kettler outdoor table tennis tables as raffles prizes. Each table is worth £599, so we were excited to be able to offer something that'd be such a great prize.

Table Tennis Tables Joins Tunnel To Towers Race
US firemen parading through the streets of an american city
This summer Table-Tennis-Tables.co.uk were asked to attend the fantastic Tunnel to Towers charity event in London to help to raise money by providing table tennis tables as entertainment. Obviously we felt privileged to be a part of such an incredible event for such an excellent cause. Two of our staff entered the race to raise money for the Pilgrim Bandits charity who help injured servicemen. Well done Chris and Tom! The Tunnel to Towers Foundation was created in the US in honour of Stephen Siller, a firefighter who risked and ultimately gave his own life to save others during the attack on the Twin Towers. The event is mirrored in the UK and sees firefighters and the public running the 5Km course for their chosen charity. Beginning in Southwark Park in South London, through the Rotherhithe Tunnel and finishing at Billingsgate Market in the shadow of Canary Wharfs Towers, where a street party is held into the evening.
Stephen Siller's Story
Firefighter Stephen Siller was sadly orphaned at the age of nine which left him to be raised by his older siblings. Despite his difficult start in life and thanks to the love of his siblings & the values taught by his parents, he grew to be an extraordinary individual & dedicated firefighter, achieving much in his 34 years.
On September 11 2001, Stephen had just finished the late shift at Squad 1, Park Slope, Brooklyn and was on his way to play golf with his brothers when he heard on his scanner that the first plane had hit the Twin Towers. On hearing this he called his wife Sally and asked her to tell his brothers he would meet them later, and then returned to Squad 1 to get his gear.
Stephen then drove his truck to the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, which was already closed so he strapped 60 lbs of gear to his back and rushed on foot through gridlocked traffic. He ran from the Tunnel to the Towers where he saved the lives of others but unfortunately at the cost of his own life.

When they told us about their fundraising plans we were delighted to donate two Pink Adidas Laser Candy bats and cases for their raffle.
Their event raised £640 for this fantastic cause.
Well done to everyone at Jobsgopublic and thank you for choosing us as your table supplier. We hope you have years of fun in the office and hats off to you all for your fundraising.
Here's what Miles Skelton, Managing Director, had to say about us and the table we provided:
"We have recently moved into our new office in Farringdon EC1 London, and pride of place in our break out area was our new table tennis table purchased from yourselves. May I thank you for the table tennis bats that you kindly donated that we offered as prizes for our charity competitions.
We had an amazing evening and everyone loved the table...and whilst the original plan was to fold it away during the day it has stayed out since :)
I was incredibly impressed with your service...from initial conversations with Russell to delivery and after sales service you guys have been great...and the table is just top notch. "

The Saracens Enjoying The Table Tennis Table We Supplied
Table tennis is a great game for all ages and athletic abilities. Our customers range from pre-schoolers to world-class professional athletes.
We were delighted to supply a table tennis table to Saracens Rugby Club recently.
The players at Saracens enjoy the game to wind down after a gruelling days training, but always display their competitive nature at the table. They were kind enough to send us the video below.
Saracens is a club steeped in History. Dating back to the 18th Century, they’ve enjoyed huge success through the ages.
If you would like to take in a Saracens game please visit their website at www.saracens.com for their latest fixtures.
It’s fun for the whole family and the atmosphere is truly electric.
We’d like to wish Saracens a successful season and thank them for their custom!
Never Too Young to Start!
This clip was filmed at Woolwell Table Tennis Club and shows 18 month old Jamie playing multi-ball (which is a repetitive practice technique) with his father Kevin. They have been “playing” table tennis together since Jamie was just 6 months old. Kevin originally made the video to send to his partner’s family, but it has now become a huge YouTube hit, which to date has had over 1.5 million views. Table tennis certainly runs in the family. Kevin’s partner Marketa is a former champion from the Czech Republic and his older son is also showing great promise. We wish them all good luck with their training and hope the children enjoy a long and happy playing career.
Nor Too Old To Start!
Evan's Clever Idea to Strengthen His Weaker Arm
At table-tennis-tables.co.uk we absolutely love to see youngsters enjoying their tables and to hear of any fun new games and training ideas they have thought up.
We were delighted to receive this photograph from Catherine showing her 10-year-old son Evan playing on his new Kettler Stockholm. As you can see he’s using the playback facility with a table tennis bat in each hand. He came up with this idea to strengthen his weaker arm. Good thinking Evan!
We hope you keep improving and that you continue to get lots of fun from the sport.
More Happy Young Customers
We just wanted to share this wonderful photo we received from one of our customers. The boys (aged 8 and 10) love their new table tennis table so much that they were up and outside playing in their PJs before breakfast!
This is what we love to see and we hope the whole family has many, many years of fun & friendly competition. Thank you for sharing this picture with us.
Braehead Clan Ice Hockey Team Also Love Table Tennis
Braehead Clan Ice Hockey Team have recently purchased a Gallant Knight Academy 19 table tennis table from us for their players to use. Table tennis is a fantastic way to improve reactions, balance and hand-eye co-ordination. It's extremely popular with professional sportsman and women from a vast array of disciplines. The player below is Derek Roehl who joined the team in July 2014.
The Braehead Clan are Glasgow's only professional ice hockey club and they compete in the Rapid Solicitors Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL), which is the UK's premier ice hockey league. The Clan play out of the 4,000 seater Braehead Arena. It's a superb entertainment venue in a stunning location on the banks of the River Clyde. The club are also highly involved with the local community, helping promote the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle. We're so pleased that table tennis has become a part of both their training and their relaxation time, as it has with so many other sporting teams. It's also worth noting that at the time writing this the Clan are sitting pretty at the top of the Elite League! Years ago the Superstar footballer Gareth Bale purchased table from us and soon after he hit the big time and became one of the world's best.....just saying!

Sprowston Senior Citizens Table Tennis Club
Inspired by the film ‘Ping Pong’, Sprowston Senior Citizens group started their table tennis club in 2013. The aim of the film ‘Ping Pong’ was to encourage and promote active ageing using table tennis. The sport is an ideal way to maintain a healthy body healthy, mind happy and to stay socially active.
When they first started they had to use small tables that were already at the venue, putting them together to make different sized tables. They also had access to a ¾ sized table tennis table which had to be brought to the venue each week! The group were awarded £500 from Active Norfolk and used the money to purchase some new Gallant Knight Academy table tennis tables, as well as bats, balls and nets.
Sessions are every Tuesday between 10.00am and 11.30am at the Sprowston Senior Citizens Club, Wroxham Road, NR7 8EN. It costs £2.00 which includes tea and biscuits. There’s no membership fee required so you can just turn up and pay and play on the day. Equipment is provided but of course players can bring their own bat if they wish. You’ll just need suitable footwear.
It is a very friendly group and everyone attending enjoys the opportunity to play ‘social table tennis’ and have fun. All session includes a break with plenty of chatting. The emphasis is on fun, keeping active and meeting new people whilst doing something enjoyable.
Earl Jacotine of Broadland Council with support from Wally Murrell established the group and continue to enthusiastically run and promote it. Local coach Mark Dare has attended to provide hints and tips on playing. The club is a great success story with up to 24 players attending each week. A committee has been formed within the club, and the future looks very bright.
